What you need to know about 40 year recertification!

Greg Batista explains what a 40 year certification is and why it is important.

The 40-year recertification building inspection is required by law and is to ensure that buildings are structurally and electrically safe. Buildings must have the inspection performed by a structural engineer at 40 years of age from construction and every 10 years thereafter.

Although the cost of a 40 Year Recertification can vary widely from professional to professional, there are certain basic items that can affect the cost.  Either way, it is a good idea to understand what these potential issues are so you can discuss these with your engineer.  Your engineer can provide you with a proposal once he has a good understanding of your building.  Some engineers  provide a price “per door” or per apartment. Prices can range between $10 per door to $300 per door (depending on many factors).  Others provide a price based on square footage.  Still others take into consideration the location or the structure, its age, and even if it has a crawl space that he may have to squeeze into.

What does the inspection involve?

On the surface, the inspection is rather simple. But, Although seemingly straightforward, it takes an experienced professional to perform the inspection. That person must carefully inspect the property and properly identify the problems.The inspector can also provide you with valuable feedback as to the best way to perform the repairs.

I know I need the recertification. What do I do now?

You must hire a licensed professional as required by law. I should invest some time investigating the person and the company. You must also make sure they are properly authorized and insured.Also, you should ask if they have insurance of errors and omissions, since this is the seal of a serious and established engineering company.

I had a great experience with this firm. Provided an immediate appointment for my clients that were in a pinch with time constraints regarding their inspection period for a home purchase. They delivered fast, detailed, and professional service. Explained findings in understandable language so that my customers could be confident on what was on the inspection report. I recommend highly their services. Thanks Greg for all your help!

I am so impressed with the service that we received from this company!! Seamless……..Showed up for Structural and Electrical inspection on time.
Completed the inspection while being aware of the various retail establishments needs during the inspection. Advised us what was needed by the City of Fort Lauderdale for completion of certification – filing, filing fees and their address.
